A Bit More Wall Art

I am still adding "art" to my wall in my new (to me) creative room.
Woowho...I love how the wall is turning out...when complete I will post it!!

I saw the magazine Monday weekly challenge at
Paper Crafters Corner using this cover


and as soon as I looked it at it, it reminded me of paint samples I had picked up at Lowes!!
Our front door, has on either side stained glass of sunflowers, so I have been wanting to
paint the doors some sort of a "sunflower yellow/gold" color.....
I still haven't made my mind up, so now it will be a "Spring" project...
so I cut two of them up and used a a background for my "Create" word.


I also remember I had purchased some of those $1 WOOD picture frames from Michaels
and this idea just immediately clicked into place.....

I even "fired up" my Cricut for the letters......
I want to add a ribbon for hanging, but I just didn't have the
strength to get the "screw eyes" in the back.
Hopefully, hubby can do it tonight without "squashing" my flower!!!

I am entering this in these challenges:
and
Mod Squad Challenge  to use "wood"

Supplies used:
SU:  DS paper and black card stock
TH Spring Greens
Cord-in-nations paper
Cricut George cartridge
Lowes Valspar paint samples
